Amulet of Time: Shadow of la Rochelle
This game is interesting
I was drawn to the 17th century story line. The graphics are fantastic. It can draw you in at times and in others, it lacks creativity. I can see why people really enjoy this game. For me it was just Ok.

This game is a throwback to the very early HOGs with the addition of beautiful graphics. Although the HOS and the mini-games are not that challenging, I recommend the game for the storyline, wonderful music, and beautiful overall look of the game.

Beautifully done game but made a little to easy. The graphics were very clear and so were the HOS, they were wonderfully colored and neat. The mini games were easy as well but enjoyable. The music was fine when there was some, most of the time there were background sounds. I did wish to express and ask was it necessary to have a nude picture of a male and female which hung by the fire place in the Lancing Quarters in the HOS?? I have children who love the games, but do not need to be taught in this manner.. Lets keep the games clean!!

paddle ball games...
I'm a fan of paddle ball arcade games but was pretty spoiled by Treasures of the Deep which remains one of my fav games. Gem Boy graphics remind me of Richochet but is far better, imo. While it doesn't come close to Treasures, it is enjoyable enough to play for awhile and the method of earning upgrades thru alchemy is unique. The early stages can seem boring, but give it a chance.. because once you earn a few upgrades, it becomes more challenging and fun. While I patiently wait and hope for a follow up to Treasures, will probably get this game as a back up alternative.
I recommend it to the players who are fans of paddle ball games

Stop the Conspirators
This is such a beautiful game to play, especially if you love history, like I do. You are catapulted into the past with the amulet of time, to save the life of the king in 16th century France. You are informed by his mistress about an assasination atttempt, which you must prevent, so this is also a kind of detective story as you need to find and stop the conspirators. There is an excellent storyline with beautifully drawn period graphics, nice music and voiceovers and great ghostly effects as you interact with characters. Plenty of HOS puzzles and mini games keep you busy, although they are on the easy side. However there are many beautifully drawn hidden object scenes, with some lovely feminine objects like fans and mirrors and beautiful ornaments, rather than the horrid junk pile you normally get. I would definitely reccommend this game, the storyline alone is compelling. There is treachery, murder, false incrimination, sabotage, betrayal, need I say more?

FUN FOR SOME, SLOW FOR ME
Graphics are beautiful, HOS somewhat easy, puzzles are fun, and different. What I did not care for is how slow your cursor moves. It makes the game a slow pacer.
I am sure a lot will enjoy this game, just not for me, even at this reasonable price.

Well Done Puzzle
Loved the HD graphics. Eye-poppingly delicious. This was a very good story and I like the way the HOS's found objects for a master list which fulfilled an objective.
My only quibble is the anachronisms. For example, the HOS's had you looking for things that did not exist in the mid-16th century, such as a toy train, gel caps, and a photograph.
As with all of these games done by developers who have English as a second language, some of the names for things were odd at times. However, their artistry and overall attention to detail made for a wonderful game that I enjoyed playing. So, well done!

A good game
I played many games,Time Amulet is not the best But it is a quite good one.
The HOS is not so hard--actually it's quite easy, low challenge, easy puzzel, and awesome storyline, the music is just soso, maybe this is the only pity.
At the first hour I started I thought it is a detective game--just discuss the murder and save the king with a little ghost tricky, that's it. However when I opened the cupboard at the drugstore and saw a bottle sparkling which I click it with curiosity, suddenly dozens of ghost hands full of the screen with evil laugh which really scared me, that's why I just give it four stars.(Actually after this happened I played it as an scary game instead of detective game)
So this is my suggestion--Get yourself prepared before you click any sparkling bottle in that cupboard,lol
BTW, I'm really look foward to its sequel, cause looks like the clown will come again

I like this game
This game is really entertaining for me because it takes place in a part of History of France.
The graphics are excellent and all the design of the costumes, places are very realistic
The hidden objects scenes are clear and easy to play
I like the music, the idea of the ghosts you see all along your quest and also the fact that you can learn a little bit about Histoty of France
You have to find 12 pieces of the amulet and I don't know yet what you get after getting all the pieces (I've not finished the game)
The only thing I want now is to go to La Rochelle and visit the city ....

Great storyline ...but regular game.
Although the beautiful graphics, pleasant sound, the gorgeous locations and the plot takes place in a very interesting period of history (you travel back in time, to France in 16th Century), the game itself does not bring much innovation regarding entertainment and challenge:
- exaggerated amount of HOS - not interactive or much challenging
- few mini games, very similar to the usual, not really challenging.
Good as pastime.
Not great quality of leisure to be a CE.
